Cherry on The Cake!

As we near the end of 2020, and the Catalyst Coach Certification program, I am humbly reminded of that fateful call with Coach Mel that transformed my life (and those around me) back in April 2020. I could follow the traditions, OR I could scribe my own journey, because I was ready to. I hadContinue reading “Cherry on The Cake!”

The Finale – Do the Hustle

As the end of the program draws to a close, I inevitably fall into the motion of leaving that comfortable space of a learner to a ….. ???? ….. ok, a graduate. It reminds me of when I completed by Biomedical Science Degree, and I was eager to fly the nest. I was an enthusiastContinue reading “The Finale – Do the Hustle”

Honour Learning

Have you ever experienced, after all your hardwork, change, blood, sweat and tears, that when you reached the destination of your journey, it was just a feeling of ‘meh’, or ‘what? that’s it?’ or even ‘I thought there’s more to this?’. Have you ever watched a trailer of an exciting movie, bought the premier tickets,Continue reading “Honour Learning”

Planning and Goal Setting

“I would love to take up painting” “I wish I could paint like you” “One day, I will start painting” Ever since I started my painting late 2017, these a just a few wishes that I have heard time and time again, from many well intended folks. I used to wonder, what was so difficult?Continue reading “Planning and Goal Setting”

Creativity in Coaching

I’ve been known to be trigger happy with my creative ideas, infamously known amongst my friends as someone who never shies away from the challenge of turning ideas into reality (no matter how crazy they sound). Though I must admit, not always successfully, not always on point, not always sustainably. My motto was always “CubaContinue reading “Creativity in Coaching”

What’s Brewing? T.E.A.

I recently bumped into a friend who was struggling to increase her social media presence as an artist. No matter what she was doing, she simply wasn’t getting the traction that was needed. In addition, she decided to quit full-time employment, to fully focus on being an independent artist. I’ve known her a couple yearsContinue reading “What’s Brewing? T.E.A.”

Strengths-based Coaching

“I feel so lost and frustrated. My boss was very appreciative of my open, honest feedback and valued it at the beginning when I first joined. Now, after many years, he says I am always just complaining. I am not complaining. I am just being me!” Sounds familiar? A strength perceived to be overplayed, potentiallyContinue reading “Strengths-based Coaching”

Neurological Levels to Greater Awareness, Insights and Success!

“I’ll never be as great as my boss” ; “I’m always too busy for my children” ; “Wish I had his creativity and tenacity to pursue my own dreams” ; “I’ve always been big-boned even as a child” ; “My parents didn’t have the money otherwise I would be a doctor today” ; “If onlyContinue reading “Neurological Levels to Greater Awareness, Insights and Success!”

Designing Actions

“The point of life is therefore to create – who and what you, and then to experience that” ~ Neale Donald Walsch Source: Conversations with God, Book One My father assigned this reading task for me at the start of the Movement Control Order back in March 2020, and I’ve been contemplating many chapters fromContinue reading “Designing Actions”

Acknowledge Filters

I’m going to let the cat out of the bag here. When Coach Mel asked us to complete the VAKAd Assessment, which was part of the PDF, I thought it was unnecessary, as I had done it before (several times), and I was quite convinced of my primary and secondary communication styles. After all, IContinue reading “Acknowledge Filters”
